I’m relatively new to WordPress and am looking for some help regarding social meta sharing with SEO plugins.
I have tried both All In One SEO and SEO Framework and I can’t seem to configure my social meta settings so that if a post is shared on Facebook or Twitter it will include a corresponding image and part of the post text. All you see is the post title.
I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong, but if anyone has any suggestions or any resources that they could point me towards it would be much appreciated. Thanks!

I think YoastSEO has options for this but not familiar with the other two (they should though).
Might be best to check with the plugin(s) support to make sure you’ve configured everything correctly.June 10, 2018 at 1:01 pm #596829Tanner
I read through this All In One SEO article: https://semperplugins.com/documentation/social-meta-module/
I could get the Facebook image and article text to work, but not the Twitter card.
I’m wondering if I should give Yoast a try? I’ve stayed away from it only because I’ve heard it’s a big plugin. Is setting up social meta relatively straightforward though?
Thanks for all your help.

Yeah that’s what I’ve heard about Yoast as well.
But I do believe they have good support that can help you set everything up.
Have you checked with All In One SEO support?
I don’t think there is anything in GP that’s causing it.June 10, 2018 at 5:58 pm #596899Tanner
It looks like support is only for Premium Users for both All In One SEO and Yoast.
After looking at it again, I noticed that the Facebook meta was only working for one of my posts, but not the others. I’m wondering if there are problems with the actual posts themselves? I think tomorrow I’ll try recreating the posts and see if the social meta for Facebook and Twitter will take.June 10, 2018 at 8:41 pm #596934LeoStaffCustomer Support
All free plugins have a free support forum:
Looks like the developer of All in One do answer questions.
I doubt it’s a problem with the post itself.June 11, 2018 at 5:05 pm #597758Tanner
I just posted in the All In One SEO forum. Hopefully I get a response.
I messed around a lot today; took down all my posts, put them back up, tried Yoast, configured it, no luck, back to All In One SEO, configured it, still no luck.
I’m wondering if it has something to do with the Facebook App ID? I’m not sure.
All In One SEO has a Facebook debugger. It gives me this message:
caution-solidWarnings That Should Be Fixed
The ‘og:image’ property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags.
The following required properties are missing: og:url, og:type, og:title, og:image, og:description, fb:app_id
But I don’t really know how to address that. Anyways, thanks for your help and hopefully I can figure it out through the other forum.
